    - Make sure that when you are running before the take-off, you do not stop or sit down. This causes an imbalance which might hurt you and your pilot, both.

    - Keep running until you soar high in the sky. In about 10 seconds, you leave the land and fly in the air.

    - Try not to lean forward during the session. When you lean too forward in your seat, it becomes difficult for your driver to handle the glider and maintain the balance. Enjoy your ride comfortably.

    - Don’t have heavy food right before your flight for obvious reasons. Since your body is not used to flying in an open sky, there are chances that you barf out all the food you have eaten a while ago. It is advisable to go for the session with an empty stomach.

    - There is a possibility that you might lose control before or during your paragliding session. Try to breathe and calm your muscles, in case you panic. It is absolutely safe to paraglide as your pilot will take care of the business.
